We have been learning all about Switzerland for International Week. We found out that there are four main languages spoken in Switzerland: German, French, Italian and Romansh. We have been learning to count to 10 in all four of these languages.
Hi Class 4!
We hope you had a lovely weekend. Remember, just do what you can and don’t worry about getting on the internet if your sibling is using the device you need. Super work so far - keep it up!
A very special message from Miss Potter...
Temple Newsam Trip
On Wednesday, Class 4 went on a trip to study history in our local area. Did you know that Temple Newsam is a Tudor house that was actually owned by Henry VIII? We learnt all about the different owners of the house, became detectives to prove it was actually a Tudor House and then even got to dress up as Tudor lords and ladies!
Class 3 and 4 made their teachers very proud during their performance in the Christmas Concert. Do you recognise the tune?
Today we made a “human number-line” from -15 to 15. We then made smaller number-lines, for example, a number-line made with only even numbers and a number-line made only with odd numbers. Miss Potter then nominated different children to start at a number and jump up or down the number line, so that we could see which number we would end up at. Maths really can be fun!.
Rewind to Christmas
Class 4 went to Moortown Baptist Church to begin our Christmas celebrations. We learnt about The Christmas Story through acting and songs. Then we made our very own candlelight holders to represent that Jesus is the Light of the World. What a great way to remember the true meaning of Christmas!
Class 4 went to Leeds City Museum to do an Egyptian workshop. In the exhibition, we saw a real life mummy and lots of Ancient Egyptian artifacts. Then, we mummified the body of a boy called Sunny, who had been eaten by a crocodile! Finally, we made our very own Ancient Egyptian amulets. What a busy, but exciting morning!
On Friday, Class 4 had a computing workshop. We learnt about what 'Computer Science' was and how to follow algorithms to solve different problems. Miss Potter even managed to use an algorithm to solve a Rubik's cube! Then we programmed different characters on apps to do what we wanted. It was so fun and we all learnt a lot! Look at us in action...
Here are Class 4 on International Day. They all either dressed in their country's traditional clothes or in the colours of the Swiss flag.
Making Fondue for International Week
Class 4 were learning about Switzerland during International Week, so we made a cheese fondue. Our favourite part was tasting it and dipping in the breadsticks and fruit that we had cut up. Yum!
